Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, the pool and accompanying bar and patio, and the inner courtyard where breakfast was served. Rooms were fine -- nothing fancy but clean, comfortable and functional. Very safe (complete with electric fence) and it served as a good centre for our travels to the nearby countryside.

The place is central and affordable. Ideal for a short term stay and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. The customer service is great and the place is secure. In a town with few accommodation options, this is an ideal place.

This was a little slice of paradise in an otherwise chaotic area. One you entered the hotel grounds the chaos of Kisumu seemed far away. Negative remarks aside, I would stay at this hotel again and order the breaded tilapia many times over. The pool is small with no deep end - but it's more than adequate for an afternoon... More

We stayed two nights at Le Savanna Country Hotel and decided it was an average place to stay. We originally booked a suite but asked to change to another location as the suite was located on the ground floor right beside the driveway and path the servers take back and forth from the kitchen to the pool. Plus they were... More

Staying at the hotel for approx 6 weeks certainly gave me a good experience of the hotel and service, both of which I could hardly fault. Special thanks must go to staff who are great, both efficient and friendly. Security is very reassuring. The location is not central and without transport can be restrictive. Food is good and the chefs... More

I stayed here for a week and I was really happy with the quality of service the staff of this hotel gave. The rooms were really clean, good ambience, and the food was reasonably priced and nice. I would recommend this place to any exhausted traveller who is visiting Kisumu. I only wish they would have more amenities e.g. Gym... More

What a nice place to stay! With great staff, they made all our wishes come true. No effort was to much for them, their very flexible. We enjoyed the pool, our view at the lake from our balcony and the food. Rooms are nice, beds fine, bathroom ok. We felt at home!

Very enjoyable stay. Nice hotel and grounds. Away from the bustle of Kisumu. Richard was extremely helpful. We followed his advice to order dinner and get the restaurant staff to phone us in our room when it was ready - this worked very well. Bottled water was provided each day.

A lovely retreat from the noise and rush of Kisumu! A peaceful haven most of the time with fantastic staff who were always so caring!
